Skateboard Passion

Sparky and Spacy are watching TV. It‘s a documentary about young skateboarders.

“Oh, that‘s great!“ Spacy admires their driving skills. The next day Spacy goes to a sports shop. “I‘d like to buy a good skateboard!“ he says to the shop assistant. The man shows him several skateboards. “This is a very good one. Also for beginners!“ he explains. “I‘ll take it!“ Spacy decides. At home Spacy practices every day. He‘s getting better and better. One day his cat is watching him. Suddenly it is standing next to him on the skateboard. Both of them have a lot of fun. Together they try to do new tricks. Sparky is really surprised. “You and the cat can go to the circus. You are real artists!“ he says.

Spacy is very busy. He is fiddling with several coins and playing cards. “What are you doing?“ Sparky asks. “I‘m preparing some magic tricks. I‘m doing some conjuring tricks at the carnival party next week!“ Spacy explains.

Snow Sculpture

Sparky is sitting in the armchair. He is reading a book. In the fireplace a fire is burning. Outside it is snowing and snowing and snowing. Spacy looks out of the window.
